"Don't Waste Your Money"
None. There aren't any.
I have a demo of Virtuallab Data Recovery and a bought version of Data Rescue 3.
They cost the same.
1. Data Rescue 3 doesn't keep the structure of the file system of the files you save. So if you have a picture folder named "Kitty Kitty Cats," you can kiss your organization goodbye. Virtuallab DOES keep all that data intact.
2. Data Rescue 3's "deep scan" took an hour to do 40 gigs. It only came back with half of the data. Virtuallab's demo did the same scan in the same amount of time and returned 100% of the data.
What is Prosoft Data Rescue 3 charging for again?
My issue is I have an old IDE drive that is NOT broken at all. It's just being held hostage via an old dynamic file system ... Windows_LDM that cannot be mounted on a Mac, at all. Not even in terminal command. If Prosoft can't recover much of that drive for the same price as its competition can - then imagine what it can't do for a truly shot to he11 drive.
I totally wasted money on this meh'ware.
